All the Drama!
Published on 27/01/20
Exciting professional learning opportunities for A-Level and GCSE students!
Our Drama department is excited to be collaborating with no fewer than three groups of drama professionals to work with our older students.
Those taking Drama A-level and GCSE will soon have the opportunity to attend a workshop at City Limits with Layton Williams (TV's Bad Education and Billy Elliott the Musical) and other members of the cast of Everybody's Talking About Jamie. Our students will be working with the West End touring stars, learning set choreography and receiving one-on-one feedback on their work. There will also be an opportunity for Q&A and photos.
The Paper Birds Theatre Company is also coming in to work with our A-Level students. This workshop will develop students' devising skills and give them a chance to learn from the professional company. This will give a fantastic insight into the profession and expand the pupils' knowledge of the drama process.
We also have the award-winning and internationally-acclaimed physical theatre company Gecko Theatre coming in to deliver a workshop with GCSE and A-level students outside lessons as a further development opportunity.
There will be opportunities for us all to appreciate what the students are learning as they perform for us in upcoming shows so watch this space...
